Vintage and classic cars are a top tier luxury for motor enthusiasts and a sight for sore eyes
Vintage and classic cars are incomparable to modern cars when it comes to performance and efficiency. Modern cars will most of the time outperform them. However, they still hold a certain appeal; they’re beautiful to look at, their craftsmanship is stunning, they have cultural significance and they offer exclusivity to anyone who owns one.
They are also objects of nostalgia and the best place to find a classic car is at Concours D’elegance.
Unfortunately, the Coronavirus is changing how we interact and engage especially in ‘gathering heavy’ situations such as events. As such, Kenya’s biggest vintage motoring event, Concours D’elegance will not happen this year.
This year’s event would have been the 50th in the unbroken annual series organized by the Alfa Romeo Owners Club as an anniversary celebration and an opportunity for vintage car owners to showcase them.
Here are 10 vintage and classic cars that you would have seen at the event.
1934 Rolls Royce Boat Tail
1967 Alfa Romeo Sprint
1972 Austin Mini
1977 Nissan Datsun 1607J
1968 Jaguar E Type
1959 Mercedes Benz 300 D
1972 VW Beetle
1947 MG TC
